My Students

"Teachers who love teaching, teach children who love learning." As I enter my 20th year of teaching, I continue to follow this mantra in my classroom. I teach 28 wonderful students who come from poverty. My students are from varying ethnic backgrounds. Most of them come from homes that are struggling financially.

My students are extremely motivated, and they are genuinely respectful to each other.

They are lovers of learning, and I am truly grateful to be their teacher this year. They come to school with smiles on their faces, and they are eager to learn. We need new books to use in our literacy centers.

My Project

My first grade students are amazing readers. Story time is one of our favorite times of the day. My students love having books read to them. They also love our quiet independent reading time. They need funny, exciting chapter books, such as the Flat Stanley adventures books for our independent reading time.

Flat Stanley takes adventures around the world and teaches the reader about these different exciting places.

We would love to have chapter books, such as Flat Stanley, to have in our classroom and for the students to read at home. These books would be a great addition to our classroom library.
